I have been getting in my own way for a very long time.  It’s often the case.  You find reasons NOT to do things, find things that are holding you back.  The fact of the matter is, the main reason that you’re not doing something, is yourself*. I’ve always…

I've had the game Tokaido for a little while, and love playing it. I was thrilled that it had been chosen for Tabletop. I was keen to show my 8yo son how the game played. He loves Tabletop.

It doesn't matter if you beep out swear words. We still have to explain what you've said. "F*$# me up the ass" was unnecessary. Surely there was another way to express the feeling of being screwed over.

I hope future episodes are slightly more family friendly.

New Blog Post: Loopy Looms and Wonderful Weaving -

Sometimes nice things happen.  Such a thing happened to me.  A gift of an Ashford Knitters Loom & Stand.  I’ve been wanting to try weaving for a couple of years now, and now I’m off and flying with it! I started small, a little scarf which I gave to the…

New ImagiNERDtive Blog Post! TARDIS Bag Update - with pictures!. #diy #DoctorWho #TARDIS #sonicscrewdriver

Well, the pattern is traced and ready to go, the fabrics are washed, and the accoutrements are all bought. Still no movement on the actual assemblage of the bag, but I have been cross stitching my little heart out. I started the Police Box sign on some…

What gets me, is that if this printer is so notorious amongst the 3D printer users for requiring constant recalibration, how does Officeworks think that they're going to be creating a positive impression and user experience?  The DRM cartridges were the biggest put off to me.  You're paying AUD$60 for approx 320g of filament.  I can buy 1kg of filament for slightly less than that.

I have a Printerbot Plus V2 right now, and it's awesome.  It still requires recalibration between changes between ABS and PLA, but I expected that when I bought it.  They are also releasing a metal Printerbot Simple, which looks amazingly solid.

What I am keeping my eye on, is the M3D. It's sub $400 printer, that (in theory) ticks all my boxes.  http://printm3d.com/  I like that it's small enough to sit on my desk without interfering with space, but it also allows for customisation in my prints, and takes any filament.

Come and learn how to crochet! First 2015 class on Saturday, February 7th.
Loads of fun, and informative too.

New Blog Post for the Whovians!: Doctor Who Comic Book Launch - Guess what I'm reading now?

For those of us who have enjoyed the exploits of the Tenth and Eleventh Doctors, it’s been hard to watch them leave the show.  As much as I’m looking forward to the new direction of the Twelfth Doctor, I would have liked a couple of more adventures with…

My first blog post in a little while. About how I snaffle the Husband into helping me make something more useful and a little pretty! #blog #ImagiNERDtive 
I’m in between bedside tables at the moment.  My old one is too big for the area I have, now that we’ve started rearranging the bedroom.  We haven’t bought new ones yet, because Husband & I can...

This place is fantastic! Great menu, without being ridiculously priced. Lovely staff, and wonderful service. It would be 5 star, but they don't stock the basic ingredients for a proper Martini! Buy some Vermouth and Olives for my next visit guys, and I'll up you to 5!
